Sadly, I just found out I failed the 1hr glucose test and need to take the 3hr test. The nurse at my OB told me not to drink water before the test, but the Quest Lab person told me to drink water. Does anyone know if it's okay to drink water prior to the test?
Also, just curious, but I've read a lot of people who said to have a high carb diet for 3 days before the test, but my OB said it's not necessary. Thanks!
